Trying to identify a lever-action rifle (non-firing possible replica)

Hi - I have a non-firing lever action that I'm trying to identify. It's a possible replica - and has absolutely no markings on it that I can tell at all. Total length is right around 36 inches.

Here are a couple of pictures:


There are more pictures at http://bkd.freeshell.org/rifle/

There is one problem with the piece - there was a pin holding it together but it's gone ... see this picture:


This would make a great wall-hanger for somebody... and sorry for the blurry pictures.

Thanks -
Brian

I can't tell from pics if it is real or not. But looking at second pic of how barrel attaches to receiver I would guess that it is a non-firing replica of an 1866 Winchester.

Naw, I'm staying with the 1866. Look at how rounded the receiver is below the hammer. The 1873 has a flat milled there.





Hmm.... Except for the side plates.... Maybe it is a not very accurate replica of an early Winchester rifle... TGR, you're right about the 1873 having side plates on it... I may have to give on this one.

Welcome to the forum, Brian

Me, I vote for a non-firing replica, not a working gun made by a gun company, per se. Basically, something to hang in a den. Otherwise it would have some kind of markings on it.

I agree that it's not real, I am just trying to figure out what real rifle it most imitates. Part 1866, part 1873.

Welcome Brian
It will help if you resize your pictures down to about 600 to 800 pixels.

The side covers on the receiver of a 73 are removeable and the 66 there is no side covers on the receiver to remover . 90% of the 66 and 73 parts are interchangeable with each other . It is a copy of a 73 and not a 66 .
